Isildur1 Wins Another $200k

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was back to winning ways yesterday as he made another six-figure score against RaulGonzales at the $1k/$2k 8-Game tables over at PokerStars.

It was another marathon session for the two high stakes pros as they went at it for 11 hours straight, playing another 2,225 hands - that's over 10,000 hands heads-up the pair have played in the last week alone, and some 15,000 in the last week and a half.

As ever it was a swingy game. RaulG started off well, progressing to a $100k lead after the first couple of hours of play  yesterday afternoon but was soon pegged back by Isildur1 who spent the next three hours building a $300k upswing to take a $200k lead in the match by early evening. Seemingly inevitably, however, RaulGonzales was able to turn the tide once again to bring Isildur1's advantage down to just $20k or so midway through the evening and the railbirds were concerned it might end up in the negative for the Swedish fan favourite. This time though Isildur1 was able to end the match on the front foot, winning back over $150k to end the session with a $182,240 profit. The results for the day actually show Isildur1 with a $192,996 profit, although this is due to the match from Wednesday running over into Thursday, with part of those results accounted for in our results for yesterday. Similarly, over $100k of Isildur1's winnings from yesterday's session will show as part of today's results.

After this latest win, Isildur1 is now the second biggest winner so far in 2017, up over $825k.

Second on yesterday's leaderboard was the young Spanish NLHE phenom Andres "Educa-p0ker" Artinano who earned $52,633 from a long day of table hopping at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 tables. It's been a good few hours for Artinano who is up over $170k this week.

In third we see Serbian pro Ognjen "psjebemvas" Šekularac who won $30,569 from a couple of hours playing at the $50/$100 PLO 6max tables yesterday evening against the likes of Ravenswood13, Deldar182, gavz101, BERRI SWEET, and bustoville.

Yesterday's top four was completed by Scarface.VLT who turned in a $22,096 peformance from the $25/$50 NLHE tables.
